BATON ROUGE – Jake Credo, a senior inspector with the U.S. Marshal Service’s Investigative Operations Division’s Technical Operations Group, received a 2017 Top Cop runner-up award from the National Association of Police Organizations.

Top Cop Awards are presented annually during National Police Week to law enforcement officers in recognition of their selfless acts of bravery and outstanding service to their communities during the preceding year. Top Cops are nominated by fellow officers and selected from hundreds of nominations. Thirty-four awards were presented in 2017.


Credo was selected for his efforts as leader of the Eastern District of Louisiana’s Gulf Coast Task Force with a team of more than 20 task force officers from local, state and federal agencies that had an arrest rate of more than 800 fugitives annually in thirteen parishes and for the critical lifesaving efforts he provided to an officer shot in the line of duty in New Orleans.


A two-time LSU graduate, Credo holds both a bachelor’s in sociology (2008) and a master of public administration from the LSU E. J. Ourso College of Business (2011).
